The benefit was awesome! There were dozens of dance numbers performed and they were great. J's quad was all dressed and ready and went on 2 hours before they were scheduled. This was good because then they changed back into team clothes and got to relax and watch the rest of show.
J and S were together all day. W was hanging out with 6 or 7 other boys (dancers, little brothers, teachers' kids - all from our studio) and behaved pretty well all day. They sold snacks and drinks so that kept him happy all day, lol. The 12 y/o dancers were all there, too, and they hung out with K all day.
Toward the end of the day, whichever kids were left got to dance on the stage while a woman from New Orleans sang. J was right out there in front, as usual. Her solo instructor said she's starting with J this week! Can't wait!
All the kids had a fantastic time at the benefit. B and I did, too! We got Dance Relief t-shirts and bracelets and learned that they raised over $15,000 for the day! We were there over 6 hours but it didn't feel like it. Coming home was difficult - it was dark and pouring rain. I am so proud of myself that I was able to follow the directions backward and got home within 1.5 hours.
Today we're going to my niece's birthday party in Long Island. B is out with K and W getting a present for her and Halloween costumes for them. J refuses to step foot into a store with any kind of Halloween display. She just gave in her costume request to B, lol. I hope he doesn't pick out something I have to bring back tomorrow, sigh. ROFL!
